Name: North Antrim GAA
The North Antrim Festival of Hurling 2016 weekend has approached which you all know by now is happening on Saturday 13th and Sunday14th August.

Teams have been invited from all around Ireland (North and South) for the 2-day event and with the numbers and teams in attendance the event has been spit across 4 venues, namely Loughgiel, Armoy, Ballycastle and Dunloy.

Saturday will see all the games commence from 4pm to 7pm approx. with BBQ for all player’s after. Sunday will be semi-final day in each of the venues after which all teams will then travel to McQuillans, Ballycastle for Parade of all participating teams and Finals of each age group with the U13s competing for the Arthur Forsythe Cup.

There is a huge amount of Hurling and entertainment happening over the festival weekend and North Antrim would encourage as many as possible to attend each of the venues over the 2-day event and welcome our guests from around Ireland to the Glens of Antrim.

Please find the fixtures for the entire weekend below and spread the word!

Absolute joke tonight regarding the referee situation,no one to ref loughiel v Cushendall and Dunloy v ballycastle. Near dark by the time it was sorted out . Twice parents had to be phoned to get kids back to the pitch as thought it was cancelled. Owen Elliott demanding that the match had to go ahead while not being there to see the situation. Laughable organisation
Dealing with your statement directly it is very apparent that you are not in full possession of the facts however North Antrim is in urgent need of volunteers who would be interested in becoming Hurling referees (Young Whistlers and Adult) to help freshen and strengthen the current pool of referees available to us, which frankly is diminishing year by year.
There are always complaints about the lack of referees in North Antrim and around the County.  It's all too easy to stand at a side-line and referee however when asked for people to come forward to help address the issue, everyone walks away and the complaints continue.
Clubs needs to realise they have a responsability to encourage capable people (Young Whistler and Adult) who have an interest in pursuing becoming a referee in the Gaelic Games.

It is simple if clubs do not find more people to referee then Gaelic games will not take place so why not you volunteer and be positive and come forward so that the situation does not happen again.

Thanks for the clarification re the football on Feis weekend - disappointing that the teams involved could not fulfil the fixtures in the spirit of the competition but I suppose the fact that the four teams could not fulfil demonstrates the many competing priorities these days.

What happened to the football on the Feis weekend - good to catch the Hurling and Camogie but it would be nice if all sports were represented - or is football just an after thought in the Glens?
The Football Finals were to be played at the Feis but were postponed at the request of the Clubs involved.
Name: ?

The Countess of Antrim is not a Feis competition.

Is it possible to get results updated onto the fixtures/results page ongoing as it is a great way to follow all the age groups .Thanks
Hi John any results sent in to us will be published and aid to keep league tables up-to-date.  It is the reasonability of all clubs to make sure this happens.

Hi Eugene change has been made, many thanks.
I am amazed that in this day and age it is taking four days at least for a reply from your replica watches company. I could fly out and buy one rolex replica uk and fly home quicker than you take to reply to emails and all I want to do hublot replica sale is place a rolex replica uk order, what is the problem. Its now over ten days since I last heard from you. I sent you the two omega replica sale order numbers that I require but you have not replied. why. I am sorry but I cannot place a replica cartier replica uk order with your company for further rolex replica uk because you are quite frankly. I know I will have to suffer the damaged hublot replica watches you sent me but I think it is better to lose on one than many.
